Segment 1: The Dessau Bauhaus / Walter Gropius. Built in 1926, the Bauhaus at Dessau remains Walter Gropius' most important building - and one of the most famous examples of twentieth-century architecture; Segment 2: Siza School / Alvaro Siza. Alvaro Siza, one of the greatest living architects, is designing new buildings for the school of architecture where he himself studied and continues to teach; Segment 3: The Family Lodging in Guise / Jean-Baptiste André Godin. Jean-Baptiste André Godin put Charles Fourier's ideas for community living into practice, building palatial collective housing for the workers at his factory; Segment 4: Nemausus 1 / Jean Nouvel. Jean Nouvel's utopian block of council flats in Nîmes looks like an ocean liner - and turns social housing clichés on their heads; Segment 5: Georges Pompidou Centre / Renzo Piano. Richard Rogers' and Renzo Piano's winning design for the Pompidou Centre looks like an outsize meccano structure, and contrasts sharply with the surrounding Parisian architecture. The architectural project as set out in the competition rules had to meet criteria of interdisciplinarity, freedom of movement & flow and an open approach; Segment 6: Vienna Savings Bank / Otto Wagner. Otto Wagner designed one of the first office blocks of the 20th century, radically departing from the style of architecture traditionally associated with banks
Artaud by Gérard Mordillat( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in French and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Antonin Artaud (1896-1948) remains one of the most influential figures in 20th century art, theatre, and cinema. His influence is evident in the works of such theatre luminaries as Jean Genet and Peter Brook, and extends into the world of rock 'n' roll through artists like Jim Morrison and Patti Smith. This amazing collection sheds light on the enigmatic genius who penned some of theatre's most sacred texts, in addition to starring in early classics of world cinema. En Compagnie d'Antonin Artaud is a drama based on the diaries of Jacques Prevel, a poet who befriended Artaud in 1946 when he was released from an insane asylum. In La Véritable histoire d'Artaud le Mômo, Artaud's friends and colleagues provide moving and extraordinary eyewitness testimony to his final years. The bonus short, Jacques Prevel, de colère et de haine, is a documentary portrait of the poet Jacques Prevel, a very close disciple of Artaud, based on the accounts of those close to him

L'origine du christianisme Origin of Christianity ( Visual )
3 editions published in 2004 in French and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Filmmaker-scholars Gérard Mordillat and Jérôme Prieur spent over three years assembling and interviewing 23 of the world's most astute historians, archaeologists, and writers on religion to probe the origins, the emergence of Christianity. In their investigation, they demonstrate how the death and crucifixion of Jesus by the Romans set into motion an irreversible division of Jews and Christians. Three and a half centuries later, Christianity became the official religion of the Empire. How did a story that began in Israel, in Judaism, in Jerusalem, give birth to a separate, worldwide religion that claims millions of believers? These scholars also address explosive issues in the Christian world, including: Did Jesus found the Church? Is Jesus God? Did Jesus have siblings? What is the relationship between Judaism and Christianity? And who was the Apostle Paul, and was he the true founder of the Church?
